hungrytommy was the original website and food blog from which the Concord Culinary Lyceum was conceived. Starting out focused on pictures to make you hungry, it began as a collection of pictures of the food I ate. It also featured restaurant reviews, both good and bad. More recently, hungrytommy has expanded into cooking and cocktails. Sharing recipes with followers lead to the Lyceum and a love of gin provided the foundation for The Juniper Society.
Today hungrytommy is focused on restaurant recommendations. I stay positive, meaning if you read about a restaurant here, I think it is worth a visit. If you want to see the restaurants that I don’t like visit me on Yelp.

Whether it’s around the world or around New England, there’s nothing like exploring new foods away from home. The chance to try new cuisine and new ingredients, to eat locally or like a local, and to create memories over a special meal , drives us to travel and immerse ourselves in places we visit. The only disappointing part is many of these meals are once in a lifetime experiences.
